Astrophotography Workshop

Loading Events

Join Stuart McIntyre for a two part astrophotography workshop, on Tuesday 2nd March and Tuesday 30th March from 7-8.30pm.  Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, you will learn how to get the best images of the stars with tips about set up and editing.

The workshop will be presented in two evening sessions. The first session will focus on planning your photograph, explore some free resources to help you plan and visualise a photo. We will also discuss the various technical techniques that can help you get the most out of your camera. The second session will take place four weeks later. You are encouraged to go and apply the knowledge you gained from the first session and submit raw images. In the second session we will edit those images and see how to bring the best out of them. To get the most out of the workshop, you should attend both sessions.

Stuart McIntyre started photographing the night sky in 2011 under the name Bound By Starlight, since then he has built up a reputation as an astrophotographer and has been shortlisted as astrophotographer of the year 2017 and has frequently written articles in the BBC Sky At Night Magazine, as well as The Great Outdoors magazine and sells his work in art galleries across Scotland.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
